Summary: I picked these up for $93 somehow (i got lucky?!) when they were available via Prime. I wouldn't say these are tournament quality, but MUCH BETTER than any other wired headphone set under the XP500s. I upgraded from X11's to these and its a world of difference. You are able to change through hearing settings for whatever game you are playing. They even include premade ones for hardcore FPS players (footsteps, superhuman, etc), or typical bass boost/treble boost.
Summary: I chose this headset because for the quality of it. I like this headset it has great sound and the presets work very well. The only flaw is that it crackles sometimes. but not much to effect your play, and the headset without chat lasts 12hrs and with chat it lasts 8 to 10hrs. So I would recommend rechargeable batteries. The headset is also completely wireless so there is no cord unless you go out and you buy one.
Summary: I really wanted to get a more expensive one thinking that they would be better but I am glad I got these. If you plan to use them with a Xbox One, then you will need to also get the Turtle Beach Ear Force Xbox 360 Talkback Cable, which is not included. It does include a Bluetooth adapter for your 360, but nothing to get it to work out of the box with the One. Sound is amazing. I can stream my Spotify to it with Bluetooth. I can talk on the phone with it.
Summary: they where great when they worked. i just notice when i played halo they worked perfect, but when playing battlefield 4 team death match on xbox live, it has alot of static like snap crackle pop. no i would not recommend this item to anyone. but if your looking for a good head set i would recommend spending alittle extra and get the ones you really want and make sure it is dual band wifi.
Summary: This was my GF's Birthday gift. She's really happy with them and I do as well, sound is perfect and crisp. Highs and lows are truly awesome. 7.1 v.s 5.1 is noticeable. I have 5.1 we have had several scenarios to compare one to the other (music, movies, games) they produce more angles thus positioning is precise.
Summary: These Turtle Beach Ear Force XP500 headphones are great. They are a clear upgrade over a previous Turtle Beach model I owned. The sound is super clear and has lots of nice presets. The mic boom is removable, which is a nice feature since I do not game online often anymore; I don't have to worry about losing the little foam end on the mic now. The headset is very comfy compared to my earlier model. Ear cups are large and soft and the padding on top is much nicer.
Summary: I bought these new and they are nice but the drawback is they are hell on AA Batteries. Overall it worked and sounded great. After 2 years the headset cracked. I knew it was out of warranty so I tried to buy a part. Turtle Beach does not sell parts nor repair out of warranty. After much arguing they agreed to repair the headset. I mailed them in and was told I failed to send in some other part.(Had nothing to do with the issue!
Summary: When they work they are fantastic. However, since they are wireless and operate using radio frequency a big problem persists. The headphones audio consistently crackle and pop due to this. Cell phones, routers, tvs, and even microwaves are to blame, but radio frequency technology is now obsolete and Turtle Beach no longer use this for their newest headsets. I've tried everything to correct it but to no success.
